The effect of a kindergarten-based, family-involved intervention on objectively measured physical activity in Belgian preschool boys and girls of high and low SES: the ToyBox-study.
Int J Behav Nutr Phys Act
PUBLISHED: 03-06-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The ToyBox-study developed an evidence- and theory-based intervention to improve preschoolers' energy balance-related behaviours - including physical activity (PA) - by targeting the kindergarten environment and involving their parents/caregivers. The present study aimed to examine the effect of the ToyBox-intervention on increasing Belgian preschoolers' objectively measured PA levels.

Using the intervention mapping protocol to reduce European preschoolers' sedentary behavior, an application to the ToyBox-Study.

Hide Abstract
High levels of sedentary behavior are often measured in preschoolers, but only a few interventions have been developed to counteract this. Furthermore, detailed descriptions of interventions in preschoolers targeting different forms of sedentary behavior could not be located in the literature. The aim of the present paper was to describe the different steps of the Intervention Mapping Protocol used towards the development of an intervention component of the ToyBox-study focusing on decreasing preschoolers' sedentary behavior. The ToyBox-study focuses on the prevention of overweight in 4- to 6-year-old children by implementing a multi-component kindergarten-based intervention with family involvement in six different European countries.

Influencing factors of sedentary behavior in European preschool settings: an exploration through focus groups with teachers.
J Sch Health
PUBLISHED: 07-25-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Sedentary behavior refers to activities involving sitting down and reclining (eg, watching TV, using the computer) and has been associated with different health outcomes. In preschool, children are sedentary for 50% to 80% of the time, in the classroom as well as during recess. Because of the absence of qualitative studies examining influencing factors of preschoolers sedentary behavior in preschool settings, this study explored teachers opinions on potentially influencing factors of this behavior.

Physical activity and beverage consumption in preschoolers: focus groups with parents and teachers.
BMC Public Health
PUBLISHED: 03-13-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Qualitative research is a method in which new ideas and strategies can be discovered. This qualitative study aimed to investigate parents and teachers opinions on physical activity and beverage consumption of preschool children. Through separate, independent focus groups, they expressed their perceptions on childrens current physical activity and beverage consumption levels, factors that influence and enhance these behaviours, and anticipated barriers to making changes.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
